of state. some people say her elbows are too sharp. but i know her a little bit the benghazi tng she was hung out dry on was the only thing the republicans had after the election to wave the red flag. i don't think it amounted to a hill of beans take it was no different from condoleezza rice, who had been involved in all kinds of things after 9/11 -- >> she could have survived benghazi if she did not have such sharp elbows. >> i don't think republicans wanted to be calmed down out this it w washington and its worst, not its best. >> charles, score one for john mccain and instagram. -- the lindsey graham. >> the issue is not susan rice. the issue is that the administration understood that benghazi is a multiple scandal could why was there no security? no one was answered -- no one has answered that. and all these contradictory stories about the video after everybody knew there or is n a vide ere e the scdals here. for the administration, they were lucky because the press is not interested in this. the only thing that would have revived the store and kept the scandal going would have b
with susan colins, then that is a little bit of a problem. >> what do you think, is it about benghazi, the politics or susan rice. >> benghazi say mystery to me. i mean i think benghazi is who lost china. it's almost like the republicans are looking for that silver bullet and that eludes me. she's partisan, susan rice is partisan. as a u.n. diplomat, unlike statesman like john bollton, you know, such a totally bipartisan-- totally bipartisan nonpartisan figure. but i found that susan colins is a moderate philosophy, moderate in manner. i found her criticism interesting. she found fault with susan rice for having been the spokesman for the democratic administration's position on foreign policy. and you know, colin powell, god bless him and says this will be the shame of his life, he was the one without made the case for going to war in iraq, you know, as the spokesman. i think this. what struck me was the administration has really handled this badly. i mean you don't send her up to the hill to meet with people unless you're going have some friendly meetings too. are you going to have s
republicans for not immediately calling the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya a terrorist action. in her letter, rice wrote, "the position of secretary of state should never be politicized. i'm saddened that we have reached this point." in u. economic new the numb of amicans filing new claims for jobless benefits fell sharply last week to its second- lowest level this year. and retail sales rebounded in november, rising 0.3% but that seemingly good news did little to help stocks on wall street today. the dow jones industrial average lost almost 75 points to close at just under 13,171. the nasdaq fell more than 21 points to close at 2,992. the european union came a step closer to a full-fledged banking union today. after an all-night meeting in brusss, e.u. financminiers agreed to give the european central bank oversight of eurozone banks, as well as banks in other e.u. countries that choose to opt-in. the european commissioner for economic and monetary affairs said the agreement was an important step forward for europe. >> last night's decision on the single supervisory mechanism
the policy and what the findings were in benghazi. the secretary of cia did to the go. and so susan rice did. on that fateful sunday after the ambassador's assassination. i think that's probably the first example, first lesson. she was out there by herself. i mean make no mistake about it. the chorus of support was pretty muted. and when the iticism came she-- the president said she was extraordinary and got a big hand at a cabinet meeting but i didn't see anything further organized on her behalf. an there were obviously beyond john mccain's own apparent vendetta from the 2008 campaign, there was when you get susan collins and people like that starting to line up against you, i mean it seemed to be a building that was going to be a tough fight. >> i would just say she was not her, she became i think for the opponents a symbol of the libya policy which a lot of people didn't like the way the libya thing was handled even before benghazi. and so if should not reflect on her professionalism and competence but she became a symbol. >> woodruff: we'll find out in a few days whether it's john kerry
benghazi. but i'm pleased to have my friend julianna goldman and al hunt. and al joins me this evening in recognizing that i didn't have a tie, so he joins me. so thank you, sir. >> i love the look, charles. you've been covering the fiscal cliff, where are we? >> it is a big question, it's what white house officials are asking. it's what people on capitol hill are asking. as you mentioned the house is going to be voting on this plan b, the alternate measure that john boehner has proposed. it's likely to pass the house but unlikely to pass the senate. so the white house has threatened that they're going to veto it regardless if it were to get to the president's desk. the big question is what happens there. and ultimately it still needs to come down to the president and speaker boehner getting into a room, this is a deal that only the two of them can hash out. >> i thought that is what they were doing. >> you know, they've actually waited until close to the deadline to start to get into the room, to for the negotiations to be one-on-one t was a lesson that they learned back in the summer
.n. ambassador susan rice withdrew her name. she'd faced republican criticisms over the benghazi terrorist attack. president obama made the announcement this afternoon at the white house. >> i am very proud to announce my choice for america's next secretary of state, john kerry. in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him f this role. having served with valor in vietnam, he understands that we have a responsibility to use american power wisely, especially our military power. and he knows, from personal experience, that when we send our troops into harm's way, we must give them the sound strategy, a clear mission, and the resources that they need to get the job done. in an extraordinarily distinguished senate career and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john has played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly 30 years. as we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we've got to harness all elements of american power and ensure that they're working together-- diplomatic and development, economic and political, military and intelligence-- as well
